My baby is 6 months old, he has never been a good sleeper (neither am I) At first he was waking every hour or so, just as I was getting back to sleep he was waking again. But we started formula and thank goodness that has settled down. He is 6months old and usually goes to bed from 8-9 oclock, he then wakes up around 12ish then some times 4ish. He usually drinks most of his bottle then goes back to sleep usually with no trouble. I was told by my mother in law I should re place it with water but because he is not a big drinker during the day 3-4 bottles at 150mls and not a big eater I kind don't want to deprive him of it just incase he needs it. During the day he usually has 2-3 sleeps around an hour long, He goes to sleep with a dummy but as soon as he is asleep I take it out cause I don't want him to get used to waking up with it and wanting it when it has dropped out. Hence why I don't want him to have it at night time when he wakes up instead of a bottle, Is this wrong, I usually go to bed a 9.30 to try and get some sleep,cause I don't sleep well so the 11pm roll over doesnt really work, Plus I try and feed him just before bed so he proberly wouldnt drink any way.. What am I surpose to be doing. Help, sleepless mum. (he usually whinges for about 10min before screaming the house down usually and wont settle without a bottle of milk.
